The Sustainable MBA is a very thorough and insightful discussion on one of the most important topics facing manufacturing, mining and oil & gas companies today, that of renewable and sustainable development. The book provides an in-depth look at innovative green business practices and is extremely helpful in assisting companies and their employees in developing a framework and strategy to promote sustainable growth.
The author has done a tremendous amount of research and has provided a unique point of view on many areas and extrapolates the key economic, financial, environmental, and social factors.
I highly recommend it to employees in industries whose operations impact the communities and environment where they manufacture, mine or drill. I recommend it to consultants and government officials who are involved in assessing the environmental and social impact of corporations. I also recommend it to holders of MBAs as well as future MBAs so that they have an appreciation for a sustainable future.
Overall, a very informative and powerful read.
